The property comprises 183 +/- acres of pasture ground and a 20 +/- acre gravel lake. Running through the property for approximately of a mile, the Arkansas River provides access to accretion ground. Pasture soils, enriched by flood deposits due to proximity to the river bottom, are classified as Waldeck fine sandy loam class 2. The pasture boasts an excellent mix of grasses with a solid sod base and flat terrain. The vegetation predominantly consists of hedge and other deciduous trees, interspersed with plum thickets and scattered cedars.
An old homestead graces the North end of the property, offering convenient access from a well-maintained county road. The uninhabited homestead is to be sold in as-is/where-is condition, complete with power, well, and septic at the location. Several RV hookups with 200-Amp power and septic are strategically positioned above the concrete boat ramp on the lake. The proximity of electricity to the lake facilitates the maintenance of ice-off during winter months using ice-eaters or aerators not included. Typically, the lake remains open due to springs, underground flow, and constant use by migrating waterfowl. The property is thoughtfully fenced, and two suspended deer blinds further enhance its features.
Recreational opportunities on the property abound, catering to hunters, fishermen, and those who relish water sports on the lake-there's something for everyone at the Lazy O. Situated in the heart of the central flyway, the lake serves as a waterfowl haven, attracting substantial numbers of ducks, Canada geese, and snow geese during migration months consistently. The Lazy O lake, along with neighboring gravel pits, ponds, and river holes, offers numerous roosting and loafing locations for waterfowl, ensuring active movement for hunting enthusiasts. The availability of electricity near the pond simplifies the task of keeping water open with ice-eaters/aerators during the coldest winter nights.
The fishing experience on the property is exceptional, providing anglers with prime opportunities to catch large crappie and largemouth bass from the comfort of a boat. The lake has been stocked and managed to maintain a healthy fishing ecosystem. Over decades, the current owners have water-skied on the lake, hosting large barbecues and lake weekends on the property during the summer months.
The pasture and adjacent Arkansas River drainage offer an excellent habitat for deer, turkey, and bobwhite quail. Past careful deer management ensures that new owners stand a chance at encountering excellent bucks throughout Kansas deer seasons. Turkeys frequent the property, often roosting in the nearby cottonwood trees of the Arkansas river bottom. Abundant plum thickets and tall grasses provide new owners with superb bobwhite quail habitat and pleasant walks for hunters.
